*** Another Viserys gaffe; he can't stand the Dothraki culture, nor being ordered around by his sister.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Viserys to simply kick his feet up in Illyrio's palace and be treated like royalty.\\
'''Instead:'''He decides to join the Dothraki, insult them constantly, attack his sister, all the while hating every second of it. Even Daenerys gets sick of him, and soon he's forced to walk alongside the Khalasar like a slave.

* WhatAnIdiot/HellsKitchen



* ''Series/HellsKitchen'' has a lot of small-to-medium screw ups each episode, but some moments of idiocy stand out:
** In the signature dish challenge, putting anything frozen, canned, or prepackaged in your dish is a surefire way to identify yourself as an asshole to Gordon Ramsay and the other chefs right away (Rock from Season 3 is the only chef to fully recover from this bad move, going on to win his season.) One chef actually allowed a ''''TOOTHPICK'''' to wind up in her food.
** Also, make sure what's on the plate doesn't take a few minutes to cook and DON'T forget anything. The penalty is being identified as TheDitz of the season.
** One other way to get labeled a complete jackass is to lie to Ramsay about reusing a dish, something that led to the downfall of Salvatore in Season 7 and Brendan in Season 9. Lying is considered disloyalty, which WILL get you kicked off the show 99% of the time.
** The other major WhatAnIdiot pitfall that can identify yourself as a douchebag on ''Hell's Kitchen'' is to make a congratulatory remark or gesture when you still have a ways to go in a service or have struggled. This happened to Ben in Season 4 when his team reached a good 6 tickets left to go in the fourth episode's Family Night service..\\
'''You'd expect''': To keep his mouth shut and get back to work.\\
'''Instead''':He does a high-five and congratulates his team on their work, which Ramsay overheard. Cue MoodWhiplash when Ramsay mocks him and tells him the women's team has only '''two''' tickets to their six. The ladies had to be brought in to help, and Ben never left Ramsay's crosshairs for the rest of his stay on ''Hell's Kitchen''; he was eliminated three episodes later after he presided over a disaster dinner service and talked back to Ramsay.
** The third episode of Season 3 had a two-stage steakhouse dinner service. The blue team won the challenge earlier, and got the choice of cooking first or second; they cooked first, and as the service began, Ramsay told Ben "Desserts, pick up".\\
'''You'd expect''': For Ben to interpret that this means keep the station manned, and of course, keep in mind that the desserts come much later, if the blue team can get to them. If confused, ask. You may get yelled at, but it doesn't hurt that much.\\
'''Instead''': Ben interpreted this as "give Ramsay the desserts", and made a few and brought them up to the pass right away, before Charlie on apps can even complete an order. Ramsay was very unimpressed with him doing this, and harshly made fun of him for his sitcom-style mistake. Seth, the resident ButtMonkey and weakest chef that season, even admitted that while he did stupid stuff, Ben's maneuver was embarrassing. For extra points, the team never even reached desserts due to having a disaster on the grill, and they went on to lose the night.
** In the first episode of Season 6, Ramsay commented that Melinda's spaghetti looked undercooked, which prompted her to throw the whole batch in the trash instead of just cooking it for a bit longer. This is a big enough WhatAnIdiot moment in of itself, but then Ramsay leafed through the trash and found a huge amount of spaghetti that she had wasted over the course of the night.\\
'''You'd expect''': Melinda to admit fault on throwing away the undercooked spaghetti, but point out that the reason why she had to ditch most of the other spaghetti was because Tek kept ruining the scallops, which required the entire dish to be recooked. Additionally, she wasn't even the person who wasted most of the spaghetti; that was Lovely, who had abandoned her station for a snack break five minutes beforehand.\\
'''Instead''': She spends the next five minutes with a deer-in-the-headlights expression on her face and acts as if she's totally unaware of the fact that Ramsay is yelling at her and trying to extract an explanation. This proved fatal as, despite Amanda and Lovely making far worse mistakes in the service, Ramsay eliminated Melinda that night for her spaced-outness and the amount of spaghetti she supposedly wasted, and his parting shot regarding Melinda closing the episode was "[[CrowningMomentOfFunny Melinda was completely lost in space, so I sent her back to whatever planet she came from.]]"
** The following episode saw both teams lose. Gordon asks Joseph what two members on his team were picked to be removed and why.\\
'''You'd expect''': Joseph to give a clear cut answer.\\
'''Instead''': Joseph says in a snotty tone "They know who they are. They can speak up for themselves." This pisses off Gordon and he has to scold Joseph several times before he can get an answer from him. After that, Joseph snaps, gets in Gordon's face, and [[TooDumbToLive calls him a bitch while threatening to kick his ass while also telling the other chefs to fuck off when they tell him to chill out]]. This naturally got him kicked off the show and ''he was not even picked for elimination that night''!\\
'''Furthermore:''' He also states on the ConfessionCam that anyone would be proud to have him work in their kitchen. Now, he'll be lucky if he can ''sweep floors'' for a living.
** In the fifth episode of Season 7, the teams have a challenge involving cooking pork dishes with a certain side. Due to a poor performance in the first half of the challenge, the team ends up with a slightly awkward selection of ingredients including pork tenderloin, ham hock, blood sausage, apples, sweet potato and prunes. The team quickly agrees on pairing the tenderloin and apples, but are unsure of how to pair the remaining four.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' The ham hock and prunes to be paired together (possibly in a salad or something similar) due to their similar natural sweetness, and the blood sausage with the sweet potatoes, which will take the edge off the sausage's taste.\\
'''Instead:''' Scott browbeats the rest of the team into producing a blood sausage and prune purée dish, along with a sweet potato soup garnished with some ham hock. The former dish ends up tasting so bad that it nearly makes Ramsay throw up, and the latter violates the challenge rules since the sweet potato is meant to be a garnish to the ham hock, not the other way around. Unsurprisingly, the team loses.
** Later that episode the red team also loses the service, and Fran is named the Best of the Worst, giving her the task of picking which two chefs should face elimination that week. It looks as if she'll have an easy choice to pick Maria and Scott, who screwed up badly in this and previous services, but Scott corners her in the dorms and tells her that chances are Ramsay will eliminate both him and Maria if they're nominated, which will leave the team down two members.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Fran to realize that Scott is just trying to save his own neck, and tell him to fuck off. Alternatively, if she was worried about a double elimination occurring she could have nominated Siobhan rather than Scott, as she had screwed up badly enough to justify being nominated, yet had done sufficiently better than Maria that she likely wouldn't be eliminated.\\
'''Instead:''' Fran nominates Maria... and Nilka, who had been the team's best performer in most of the prior services. This move not only makes her look like a gullible idiot and leads to Ramsay rejecting her nominations (calling up Scott and Maria anyway, the latter of whom got the boot), but alienates Nilka and completely shatters the team's morale, leading to an even more lopsided defeat the following episode.
** In episode 2 of season 8, Vinny serves as an assistant maître dí, while [[TheLoad Raj]] is in charge of sides. Vinny does not have faith in Raj being able to handle his station.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' Vinny to just get on with his job. It's not like Gordon will yell at ''him'' if Raj screws up.\\
'''Instead:''' He suggests to the customers that they don't order sides. One of the tables informs maitre d' James of this advice, which leads James to drag Vinny with him to the pass. When Gordon finds out about the suggestion, he's furious, and removes Vinny from the service completely
** In episode 7 of that season, Hell's Kitchen decides to have a Family Night, with members of Gordon's family in attendance. Their order includes a risotto, which Vinny's in charge of preparing.\\
'''You'd Expect:''' That, given how angry Gordon gets whenever the chefs try to serve substandard food to people NOT related to him, Vinny would make sure not to cock this order up.\\
'''Instead:''' He tries to serve a risotto that was prepared a few minutes earlier. Cue Gordon going PapaWolf on him.
*** On that note, family services have been an annual occurrence at Hell's Kitchen since the fourth season, and Gordon's family is always in attendance for these services (Sous Chef James has had his family appear too). Cooking for them is a big deal.
*** '''You'd Expect:''' The chef cooking for Gordon's family would make sure to get it right, and watch out for sabotages from other people [[ExecutiveMeddling such as the producers]], who are eager to get them into trouble for this critical order.
*** '''Instead:''' The chef proceeds to send up something unacceptable such as a cold cheeseburger or undercooked, pink chicken, which prompts a PapaWolf attack on them from Ramsay.
** On season 11 of Hell's Kitchen, Sebastian, after messing up two risottos, started trying to be loose by saying people's names funny. The first one, Mikey Wikey, went undetected, but the second one, Zacky Wacky, got Ramsay's attention. Ramsay laid into him, then ejected him from the service.
*** '''You'd Expect:''' Sebastian to head straight upstairs, and sit and wait for elimination, since events in the kitchen were now out of his control for that service.
*** '''Instead:''' After leaving the kitchen, he turns around and comes right back in. Ramsay yells at him to get out a second time.
*** '''To Make Matters Worse:''' After Michael and Barrett mess up their meat, Sebastian returns for the '''third''' time, disgusting Gordon, who calls him up front. After ordering Michael and Barrett out of the kitchen, he informs Sebastian that if he reenters the kitchen a [[FourIsDeath fourth time]], he'll kick him '''out of the competition''', and eject him through the front door (meaning a walk of shame through the dining room) at that. Sebastian stays upstairs this time until the after service meeting, but he was eliminated for this anyway, with Ramsay feeling he wasn't taking the competition seriously.
** A few episodes later, Hell's Kitchen hosted a breakfast service with scrambled eggs, but this service is also an elimination challenge. Prior to the service, the teams are shown sample dishes that Gordon cooked beforehand to study.
*** '''You'd Expect:''' For the chefs to leave them alone once they're got the idea down, and if they need a mid-service refresher, not to confuse the samples, which would now be cold, from the ones they're cooking.
*** '''Instead:''' In the blue team, Jeremy took one of the samples to the back, and inadvertently serves it to the pass without noticing it was the older dish from earlier. Ramsay did notice, and calls the entire team up, rips Jeremy and Dan for being "disgusting pigs" for attempting to serve one of the samples, which now could make someone sick, and forces the team to redo that specific order. Jon notes Jeremy as an idiot for this, but the blue team was able to win anyway. At elimination, they get rewarded... with Jeremy getting ejected from their team, something that's only happened a few times before (such as with Season 5's Carol and Season 8's Raj), and Ramsay called it a reward for them.
